5 out of 5 stars Facelift

Definitely one of the best facial plastic surgeons in Seattle.

Very positive experience during my facelift 8 months ago. Great followup and and makes sure you are happy with the result. The staff are excellent and caring. And getting in and out of the office wrapped in scarves, hats and sunglasses works well.

5 out of 5 stars Facelift

I had amazing experence

I would like to express my gratitude to Dr. Wayne Larrabee of Seattle Washington for my excellent result of my face lift. Dr. Larrabee did such a great job, and my face looks very natural and makes me feel like my younger self again. I also appreciate the pleasant support staff at the Larrabee Center from the front office to the anesthesiologist and surgical team. The nurses were also very...

5 out of 5 stars Vi Peel

30 Year Old with Acne Scars and Hyper-pigmentation - Seattle, WA

Dr. Larrabee and his staff are warm and welcoming. Lauren Gross cannot be praised more for how she saw my skin, listened to my concerns and combined an IPL with the ViPeel a week later to bring my muddy looking face to bright and fresh. She is calming and reassuring during uncomfortable parts of the procedures and ALWAYS available to discuss questions/concerns after. I would highly recommend paying a visit to Dr. Larrabee and Lauren for that person touch. They made me feel like family as we decided the best way to deal with my acne scars and hyper-pigmentation.

5 out of 5 stars CoolSculpting

Amazing Procedure

I had a few rounds of coolsculpting done at The Larrabee Center on Capitol Hill this past summer and I am so so glad I did. Even after working myself to the point of exhaustion at bootcamp 5-6 times per week, I still had a stubborn pooch of fat on my stomach and flanks that just would not go away. Lauren at Larrabee was incredibly honest with what she thought was best for my body and described...

5 out of 5 stars Ultherapy

47 Year Old with Sagging Skin. Seattle, WA

I had an initial consultation with Dr. Larabee to discuss options, and later followed up at the Esthetics Center for Ultherapy. Lauren at the Esthetics Center was kind and helpful throughout the Ultherapy session. She is committed to her patients having the best possible experience on the day of the service and with the results. I felt like I was in excellent hands.

5 out of 5 stars Neck Lift

Neck Lift and IPL Photo Facial. Seattle, WA

I came to see DR Larabee after my neck was scarred during CO2 Laser surgery by a different surgeon. Dr Larabee is not only very talented but he is kind, compassionate and caring. He lifted my neck to help tuck and hide the damaged area. I am now seeing Lauren at The Larabee Aesthetic Center for IPL Photo Facial treatments. Lauren is a blessing. She is kind and caring and loves to help people. I continue with the treatments and it is helping to even my skin tone and further improve the damaged area. The Larabee Center has been a blessing to me. When I first arrived the damage to my neck was very noticeable and my self esteem was low. Dr Larabee and Lauren have changed that and helped me to feel good about myself again I highly recommend the Larabee Center.
